Truck falling on it's face and die's

Ok so I'm new to the fourm and pretty much new to power strokes, and here is my problem. Started the truck (02 F-350 PS 50,000 original miles) noticed it was idling a little rough, go to pull out of the drive way and no power, get a couple of blocks down the road and she dies, let it sit for a couple of minutes, crank her over and held the peddle to the floor and she started and ran rough for a few seconds and it was fine any ideas guys? Thanks in advance from the FNG.
Mike.

Thanks for the info. I changed the cam censor and the truck is running good accept when you go to start it, it takes about twice as long to crank over and start as it did before any ideas what might be causing it to take so long to start?
Thanks,
Mike.

Cam shaft sensor adjust timing. The new sensor has a different timing profile than the old. I wouldnt worry about it as long as it starts.
